In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) Success Rates

In Vitro Fertilization (IVF) success rates depend on a number of different factors, including your age and your infertility diagnosis. Here at Coastal Fertility Specialists, our high IVF success rates come from a passionate belief that your care must be individualized to take advantage of the latest techniques medicine has to offer. Individualization of patient care has become even more important as additional options in IVF such as "freeze all" techniques and preimplantation genetic screening (PGS) become more promising.

To offer you the best chances of success with IVF, we use state-of-the-art ovarian stimulation protocols with appropriate ovarian suppression, LH activity addback and our "cutting edge" embryology laboratory headed up by Dr. O'Leary.

Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART)

In order to provided the highest level of care for you, we are proud members of the Society for Assisted Reproductive Technology (SART) and report our annual pregnancy rates to SART. SART then performs random audits verifying results and publishes the results. Please click here to view our 2014 assisted reprooductive technology success rates. There are many varibles to consider and we are happy to guide you through that discussion during your consult.

As a supplement to the SART website we have posted more recent success rates below which incorporate the changes in our treatment protocols since the last reporting year.

IVF Success Rates Year 2015 in Freeze All Cycles

Over the last several years embryo cryopreservation techinques have significantly improved helping to improve embryo survival and pregnancy rates. This improvement has offset the apparent detrimental effect to the uterus of an ovarian stimulation thus improving pregnancy rates in intentional "freeze all" cycles. This approach is not right for everyone and is something you should discuss with your CFS physician.

This graph displays our patients' IVF clinical pregnancy rate in freeze all cycles rate per initiated cycle, using their own eggs, for the year 2015. A significant number of these treatment cycles were patients with just a single embryo transferred in an effort to lower multiple pregnancy rates.

The clinical pregnancy rate is defined as the percent of cycles resulting in a pregnancy with fetal cardiac activity within the uterus at 7 weeks (5 weeks after embryo transfer).

Please note: A comparison of clinic success rates may not be meaningful because patient medical characteristics, treatment approaches and entrance criteria for ART may vary from clinic to clinic.

IVF success rates also vary from person to person based upon the cause of your infertility. As a result, we recommend that you contact us for an infertility consultation to get the best estimate of your personal chances for IVF success.

Pregnancy rates for women 40 years of age  or older vary significantly based on ovarian reserve. We encourage you to call for a consult to discuss your estimated pregnancy rate.
